Japanese Religion



The Japanese culture is religiously vast and diverse, made up of both traditional religions as well as new religious movements known as shinshukyo or shinko shukyo. This Japanese society reminds me of the ancient Greek civilization of Athens as people who were eager for the latest philosophy or newest idea. However in spite of this explosive cult phenomena there still remains a large group of atheists and agnostics which are skeptical as to assign all religion to mere human superstition and myth.
Anyway for those who are interested in researching these matters I would encourage you to read the following articles covering some of these movements.


一一: 28-30 Jesus said,

28重いくびきを負って働かされ、疲れはてている人 たちよ。 さあ、わたしのところに来なさい。 あなたがたを休ませてあげましょう。 29わたしはやさしく、謙そんな者ですから、それこそ負いやすいわたしのくびきを、わた しといっしょに負って、わたしの教えを受けなさい。 そうすれば、あなたがたのたまし いは安らかになります。 30わたしが与えるのは、軽い荷物だけだからです。」
